Playa Hermosa Guanacaste
Hermosa, which means "beautiful" in Spanish, is an aptly named gray-sand beach that perches between two mountains. In fact there are two Playas Hermosa, [the other](/costa-rica/destinations/hermosa-beach) being in the [Central Pacific Coast ](/costa-rica/regions/central-pacific) near [Jaco](/costa-rica/destinations/jaco-hermosa-heradura) while Guanacaste's Playa Hermosa is situated between [Playa del Coco](/costa-rica/destinations/playa-del-coco) and [Playa Panama](/costa-rica/destinations/playa-panama), Hermosa is seldom as crowded as its neighbors. It is a fabulous getaway for those seeking quality relaxation.
